Charities: What Makes The Robbie Special?

  • It's not just the soccer,

    but also the proceeds raised over the years to help fight Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Dystrophy.

    Robbie Wimbs In 1967, a group of soccer enthusiasts met in John Wimbs' living room to organize a small soccer tournament for boys. From above, they heard three year old Robbie Wimbs receiving treatment for Cystic Fibrosis. CF is an incurable disease that in 1967 took most of its victims before the age of five.

    There and then the organizers decided to dedicate their tournament, not just to soccer, but to fighting the disease. The Robbie was born.

    Since 1967, youth teams have been coming to Toronto to play soccer and, through entry fees and various activities, raise money for children who suffer from CF. The introduction of the Girls' division several years later prompted organizers to recognize another cause - Muscular Dystrophy.

    Thanks to the Robbie and other organizations, CF and MD victims are living longer and with greater hope. Robbie Wimbs survived until he was 33. He lives on in the tournament he inspired.

Please help us to help children with CF and MD.
